Thankful Thursday

Our 1st Grade Language Arts Curriculum integrates a Biblical Worldview with their themed units. Every three weeks, the students focus on new vocabulary words from award winning literature and discuss how that theme also applies to scripture. Their first theme was “courage” and the students learned the words “idea” and “strong.” They discussed how God is a strong tower and that He gives us courage to do hard things. They started their next unit this week on “Community.”
The students use movement to learn their phonics sounds (clapping hands, actions, moving around the classroom) and write on the whiteboard to demonstrate proper punctuation in grammar.
The 1st graders also love their Friday “Author’s Chair” when they get to share their work with the class!

Staff Spotlight

Staff Spotlight on Mrs. Emily Cornish…
I graduated from Biola University with a Bachelor of the Arts in Elementary Education, and went on to get my California teaching credential. Last December, I got married to Sean and became “Mrs. Cornish”.
Fun Fact: Outside of the classroom, I love spending time exploring God’s creation! I have hiked to the summit of Mt. Baldy which has an elevation of 10,064 feet.
I love SGCS because I get to proclaim God’s word, educate students, and watch them grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus!
I am excited to have all of my students back in the classroom! I love being able to provide my students with an engaging and hands-on learning experience.
